    I think I would be printing at home too.

    I have the Larrisa biker jacket pattern…does anyone know how long of a piece of paper it may print out on @ FedEx/Kinkos? I do know that their wide format printer is 36 inches wide here…in Ohio. (USA). And they also charge .75 per square foot.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to copy a vintage pattern? I went to Staples and they want $50 to copy a poster-size piece of paper. Has anyone ever had a pattern photocopied? If so, where? I really don’t relish the idea of tracing all of my patterns onto pattern tracing fabric or ironing interfacing onto the back of each piece (which I’m not confident would be so hot of an idea). The owner of my local sewing shop told me that all of my 60’s & 70’s patterns are going to disintegrate. Please help! TIA!

    @ink, What is the name of the company you go to?…I can’t seem to find anything under $15 dollars.

    I just ordered, online, two patterns to be printed out at staples (one 24×36, one 36×48) for $7.49+tax. I selected their “blueprints” option. Hopefully they’ll come out well.

    I was just wondering if it is possible to simply purchase these patterns (since the pattern numbers for burda are on them) at a local JoAnn Fabrics or something? Or do you have to print them?

    I am having the hardest time getting my purchased pattern printed at by Office Depot’s copy shop. When I submitted the order online, the system automatically selected a poster-size print 36" wide by 108" long, which seems correct to me, but the copy shop clerks have no idea what to do with it. First, no Office Depot location appears to be able to print anything larger than 11×17 (weird—why even bother to offer copy/custom printing services if that’s the largest size?), so it has to be printed at their regional printing facility and shipped. However, reading the instructions provided above, which indicates printing on 3-foot-wide paper, I’m now not sure that 36×108 is correct. Very confusing. For a great-looking $4 pattern this is turning out to be quite a hassle. Think I’ll try the independent copy/printing shop near my office instead.

    I have a plotter at work and could really use some help with some instructions on printing for that, I have tried a few times and end up with parts cut off. A how to for using a degnin jet plotter or something like that would be great – maybe with instructions for particular paper sizes such as A0, thanks

    FedEx/Kinko’s and the average photocopying shops geared to the average user are expensive and 98% of the time totally incompetent with large scale print outs- technically etc…{They cater to the average joe.}

    Find a print shop in your area (A print shop that specializes in printing out architectural prints.) These types of shops have large format printers i.e. 36" & other width prints that spew out large architectural drawings quickly.

    I pay One dollar and twenty four cents ($1.24) for a sheet 36×48 at my local printer. (SUPER CHEAP)

    Print shops that cater to architects, draftpeople, and contractors are knowledgeable about printing and economical.

    Just phone around!

    By the way, the town where I live is tiny, so…. I bet there is a shop near you! :-)

    I had a pattern printed yesterday at Staples. They charged 4.99 per 3′×4′ sheet. It was a long, plus size dress. It took 3 (all connected, of course) total was a little over 16.00 with tax. Pretty cool to have it waiting after work! FedEx Kinkos was .75 per sq foot.

    FedEx Kinko’s here in IL charges .75 a square foot. A 3’ X 6" piece comes to $13.50. I just called.

    Does anyone have plotters at home that they use to print? If so what type and size do you use?

    I’m not sure what specs were provided for the aforementioned quote but I went to Staples today and it certainly wasn’t $100. They charged $7.50 + $2.00 file conversion fee (basically for the guy to plug my flash drive into the computer — whatever) for a 3 ft x 5 ft page on which I had the Laura dress pattern printed.

    I just called both staples and Kinkos for price estimates and in order to get a 3′×6′ page for your latest dress it costs around 100.00 on their cheapest paper Fedex Kinko’s quoted three 3′×2′ pages to accommodate the pattern at 40.00. I think I will be printing at home for now.

    Non fussible interfacing is a great thing to copy patterns on. Fussible ironed on to a paper pattern will make it last longer and not tear as easily.

    Cool! I have a Kinko’s printer shop very close by, pickup sounds like saving some shipping money. I am also wondering about how much the printing service is approximately…or is it just worth gluing all the papers together myself?

    And again, if you download from burdamode site a free pattern or from here, and chosen the kind that has all sizes on it, plan on reusing it, maybe sew another size for someone else, not just yourself; then copy the size you want on other cheap paper (I use packing paper) instead of cutting it right away.

    I know prices will vary depending on the pattern. Just the same, to give us an estimate, how much did the pattern above cost to print?
